Project1Well folks, climate change deniers are our newest “Assholes of the Day!”
By Pallab Ghosh
New research suggests that the main system that helps determine the weather over Northern Europe and North America may be changing.
 The study shows that the so-called jet stream has increasingly taken a longer, meandering path.

This has resulted in weather remaining the same for more prolonged periods.
_73016555_73016554The work was presented at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) in Chicago.
The observation could be as a result of the recent warming of the Arctic. Temperatures there have been rising two to three times faster than the rest of the globe.
According to Prof Jennifer Francis of Rutgers University in New Jersey: “This does seem to suggest that weather patterns are changing and people are noticing that the weather in their area is not what it used to be.”
MEANWHILE:  Climate change may be the world’s “most fearsome” weapon of mass destruction and urgent action is needed to combat it, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Sunday, comparing those who deny its existence or question its causes to people who insist the Earth is flat.
untitledIn a speech to Indonesian students, civic leaders and government officials in Jakarta, Kerry laid into climate change deniers, accusing them of using shoddy science and scientists to delay measures needed to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases at the risk of imperiling the planet. He also went after those continue to dispute who is responsible for such emissions, arguing that everyone and every country must take responsibility and act immediately.
“We simply don’t have time to let a few loud interest groups hijack the climate conversation,” he said, referring to what he called “big companies” that “don’t want to change and spend a lot of money” to act to reduce the risks.
“We should not allow a tiny minority of shoddy scientists and science and extreme ideologues to compete with scientific facts,” Kerry told the audience gathered at a U.S. Embassy-run American Center in a Jakarta shopping mall. “Nor should we allow any room for those who think that the costs associated with doing the right thing outweigh the benefits.”
“The science is unequivocal, and those who refuse to believe it are simply burying their heads in the sand,” Kerry said. “We don’t have time for a meeting anywhere of the Flat Earth Society,”

Snow-Tokyo-Coming-of-Age-2013-007AND ON TOP OF THAT: The second heavy snowfall in a week to hit Japan killed up to a dozen people and injured hundreds over the weekend, while paralyzing traffic and causing power outages. In Yamanashi, in central Japan, a record 114 centimetres of snow fell. About 27 centimetres of snow was enough to paralyze Tokyo, which usually sees only a few light dustings each winter.
The Japan Meteorological Agency said Sunday that the low pressure system was travelling north, dumping more snow after passing the Tokyo region. Media reports said as many as 12 people died and 1,500 were injured nationwide since Friday in snow-related accidents.
Another day, another winter storm for most parts of Newfoundland and Labrador on Sunday, as Environment Canada issued weather warnings for most parts of the province.
Officials say it is so warm at the Sochi Olympics, that the snow on the ski runs keeps MELTING!
240506,xcitefun-snow-road-4Scientists call it Santa’s revenge. It’s the theory that persistent weather patterns at the mid-latitudes – like this winter’s tediously long-lasting polar vortex or California’s severe drought – are a direct consequence of climate change heating up the Arctic.  New evidence suggests the link is real, even as experts continue to argue over how much it is influencing the weather on a day to day basis. The effect has implications for severe weather predictions, food security and water use across the northern hemisphere.
If the data are right, they suggest that climate change in the Arctic is coming home to roost in a big and expensive way.

nye-blackburnBill Nye, the science guy, is going to take on another leading proponent of NON-SCIENCE, Tennessee Rep. Marsha Blackburn, (No relation to London’s Blackburn’s) in a “not-really-a-debate” on today’s  “Meet the Press!”
We here at the Perspective Research Department will watch it for her views on the age of the earth,  evolution, faith healing, gay rights, heaven and hell, and of course …………….., to see how many spaces on our “climate denial” bingo card we can fill!

untitledWAIT, back the truck up boys: Canadian actress Ellen Page said today that “she is NOT really gay!”

Ms. Page said she felt “kind of left out” when all sorts of other artistic types were proclaiming and celebrating their sexuality, and she just wanted to “fit in with the group!”
She did, however, promise to try and turn gay, so as not to disappoint her fans!
We here at Perspective will keep you informed!
